the place is nice, mai tai cocktail was nice but the "peach tree" was different from our expectations, too sweet and not enough alcohol. The food is nice but overall the place is really expensive even if you there during the "happy hour" time slot....More

I thought that the 50s were over, but they are alive and well at Trader Vics. Tiki drinks are great, but I cannot stomach sitting in Trader Vics for long as they allow smoking inside the restaurant/bar area.More
